    TTC with no sucess. Highly depressed. Need suggestion on doctors

    Hi friends,

    I am TTC. Its been more than 1.5 year now.
    Someone please suggest me a doctor to help us with this.
    Is it true that fertility docs here may fool us by artificially exaggerating our problem to extract money.
    Kindly help us through friends.

    Thanks

    Yes, I would really recommend starting with that. That will tell you if and when you are ovulating so you can be sure you're timing intercourse correctly. There's no point spending loads of money on expensive tests if it turns out all you needed to do was change which days you get busy :)

    Alternatively, if it shows you're not ovulating you will know what the problem is and can start getting the necessary treatment as soon as possible.

    Sorry I don't know about doctors. I would recommend the book 'taking charge of your fertility' and the website (tcoyf.com) as a good place to help you understand how to temp. Good luck.

    It depends on your situation.
    If you're over 30 and making an effort -- doing your homework, tracking ovuluation, doing time intercourse, etc -- and still nothing is happening, you should go for a checkup. If there is a medical problem, you will want to know now before your fertility levels drop.
    If you're 20 and not really trying -- maybe it's just taking time.

    As for doctors -- some are more honest than others. I found a certain well-known Central doctor quite pushy with expensive treatments we didn't need, but who did get us pregnant. So it's hard to say. (The extra expensive treatments were actually after I got preggers, so I switched doctors)

    But I think the main thing is you. If you're well-read on the subject, and quite confident and firm about your needs, then you will less likely be bullied. If you go in like an airhead or say (as one idiot friend did) "Oh, we'll pay ANYTHING to get pregnant. You just make all the decisions for me!" Yeah, then a less scupulous doctor might take advantage.

    It would help on this forum if you gave us some details, like your age, medical condition, etc.
